Androgeos was a Greek warrior who led a detachment of Greeks into the burning city of Troy. There he encountered Aeneas {see planet  (1172)} in the company of other Trojan defenders. Androgeos and his detachment were set upon and killed, after which they were stripped of their armor by the Trojans, who then disguised themselves with it. It can be said that Androgeos supplied Aeneas and his men with tickets to safety. (M 22248)
